Overview
The Funders’ Committee for Civic Participation (FCCP) is a foundation affinity group promoting civic participation as a key to making our democracy work. FCCP supports the philanthropic community in its nonpartisan efforts to engage voters, eliminate structural barriers to voting, advance reforms to improve government and electoral systems, and inspire public involvement in civic life. The organization enables a more effective network of grantmakers by providing funders with a community for strategic dialogue as well as resources for civic participation research, tools, and news. A first grant from the Hewlett Foundation would support Hewlett’s ongoing engagement with the FCCP community of funders.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Abortion Access Front project  
Abortion Access Front (AAF), formerly Lady Parts Justice League, uses humor and real-time media to destigmatize abortion and expose antichoice forces working to dismantle access to reproductive rights in the United States. AAF breaks daily reproductive rights news and analysis; engages audiences through funny videos, live broadcasts, and social media; and is a trusted source for rapid response information. It also provides on-the-ground aid, morale boosting, and community building to abortion providers servicing low-income and people of color audiences in states that are politically hostile to abortion.
